    Hi Duncan,

    What is the best way to reach you? I work for a company that is coming out with a great site that would be perfect for a techcrunch article.

    Hi Duncan:

    I just read something you posted in 2008 about 18 Ways to Power Search Google, and I wanted to see if you'd be interested in presenting a webinar on this topic.

    We promote our events to several hundred thousand business professionals, mostly in the U.S. While we don't typically pay first-time presenters, if the event becomes a repeat success we could pay you then. In addition, if you'd like to promote the webinar to your own followers and e-mail list, we'd pay you a 50% commission (we set up landing pages for our partners).

    Check out our website at http://www.BusinessManagementDaily.com, and let me know if you're interested. If not, feel free to suggest another speaker.

    Cheers,

    Adam
